Advanced Yin Yoga Seminar with Joe Barnett
September 22-24, 2017
Target Practice – The Next Level!
Beyond a series of brief yet focused reviews of the foundations, Target Practice offers the participant methods to empower their dialogue and sharpen their focus, including an introduction to a One-on-One approach called Assisted Yin.
The budding Yin Therapist will learn to manually guide and hold their client’s passive body into the appropriate Target Area, while skillfully using posture and props to minimize their own muscular efforts.
This next level study also aims deeper than the crude tissues of the Target Area. The Yin practice releases blocked Chi which has the potential to awaken the spiritual centers of our being, the Chakras.
“The Modern Meridian Theory” proposes that the physical manifestation of Chi (or Prana) flows in water patterns, “rivers” or Meridians that run through the Fascia. Restricted tissue, as well as stagnant and/or deficient Chi flow is corrected and regulated through the proper application of practices like Yin Yoga.
The exit of the posture reveals this flow, this “Rebound.” And with a continuously conscious yet soft focus at the end of each asana, this intelligent vibration can be directed into the Chakras to reveal everything from suppressed regret and fear to forgotten joy and inspiration. Each awakened Chakra is a unique opportunity to examine deeply hidden motivations, an opportunity to choose to release or embrace these previously hidden drives in order to move toward a higher path.

Joe Barnett, ERYT-500, based in both Cincinnati, OH and Tucson, AZ, has been teaching for 14 years. He travels nationally and internationally year round offering presentations and trainings on Yin and Yang (Vinyasa) forms of Yoga.
He provides a deep study (both experiential and anatomical) of the crude physical Skeleton and Fascia, as well as the more subtle Meridians and Chakras. Joe is a senior student and primary teaching assistant of Paul Grilley, a true Yoga Scientist and founder of Yin Yoga. After several years of apprenticing under Paul, Joe began roaming the globe to spread the word of his teacher’s work: 1) Yin Yoga, 2) a Functional Analysis of the Skeleton, and 3) Chakra Meditation. Naturally he began training yoga teachers across the world how to begin using these practical models to help others find a quiet practice of surrender.
“Joe Barnett has been our friend and assistant for many years. He has two qualities that make him an excellent presenter: he knows the anatomical principles and he relates to people in a sympathetic manner. His presentations are unhurried, hands on demonstrations, this is the easiest way to absorb these ideas.” ~ Paul and Suzee Grilley
However, his play time is usually spent practicing, teaching and drawing others into AcroYoga which he has been playing since 2006 when he met Jason Magness, Co-Founder of YogaSlackers, with whom he continues to train/play whenever he can. In 2010, Joe traveled to Montreal to receive both levels of certification through the original AcroYogis Eugene Poku and Jessie Goldberg.
